|Perry Miniatures from their excellent 1815 range.|
Following on from my last command stand/vignette/diorama I thought it would be ideal to show you this particular grouping of figures which work very well together, These figures are depicting a Marshall at the table emphasising his strategy for the upcoming attack to his staff.
Everyone appears to be in accord with his plans with the exception of one particular aide who feels that the British squares may to too tough to break without sufficient infantry support!
"The Fool" has just been whispered through his clenched lips methinks.
|Looking slightly miffed at the front, the Marshall stresses his point!|
This particular array of figures was inspired by Scott Merrifields excellent diorama "Reporting to Marshall Ney" and can be found here:https://djokergaming.wordpress.com/28mm-gallery/
As you can see, my stand is a 'hommage" to his excellent stand with only a few variations.
|Rear view showing the scratch built fence and wild bushes.|
|Not sure whether these should be apples or just well fed berries!|
|Another view showing the attempt at depth and the juxtaposition of height to achieve a different look.|
This very much looks the part on the table and shows that a command stand can be much more than two or three figures on a round base with some flock on it...not that their is anything wrong with that mind you!
